OVERVIEW: God has given us a new, superior covenant, one in which God’s law is in our minds and on our hearts.
BIG IDEA: We are forgiven and loved by God. Forever.
KEY VERSE: Hebrews 8:6 (description of Jesus’ ministry)
But now Jesus, our High Priest, has been given a ministry that is far superior to the old priesthood, for he is the one who mediates for us a far better covenant with God, based on better promises.
IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
I am not some foreign force you hope will enlighten you or one in which you can tap into. I am the living God who is not only for you but is with you. I no longer have an external set of laws I want you to follow. I put my law in your mind and have written it on your heart. You no longer have to search for me. I am with you now and always will be.
The moment you surrendered your life to me, my Spirit took up residence in your heart and mind. Listen to my instructions and follow them. Your obedience won’t determine my love, for I will love you today and always. But your obedience will determine your satisfaction in life. If you want to live a life of fullness and power, listen and obey. And get ready to have the time of your life.
Keep reading your Bible—it is fuel for your soul. But don’t just read and go on with your day. LISTEN. What is God saying? What is he nudging you to do? And don’t just listen while you read. Stop and pause throughout your day today and LISTEN.
